Water-based coating formulations are an industry trend due to stringent environmental regulations.
The majority of silicone coatings are solvent-based or high-solids, which require solvents for cleanup, and increase
overall project VOC emissions.
Silicone Water-Based Elastomers (SWBEs) are silicone elastomers offered as a water-based latex which provides
easy handling and formulation, with the resulting performance of a solvent-based or high-solids silicone coating.
SWBEs are ultra-low in VOCs and do not require solvents for cleanup. They offer good adhesion to variety of
substrates such as masonry, glass, metal, wood, and textiles; and display increased weatherability and water
resistance in ambient-cure or bake coatings for applications such as waterproofing, protective, anti-graffiti,
elastomeric, air and weather barriers, and paints.
